A death star yeah that’s what scientists are calling it because it is humongous and can wipe out a great portion of the earth.
Scientists are raising a warning alarm to save the plant from extinction.
The name was given to a star called ‘Gliese 710′ shoe distance from our solar system is decreasing and noticed by a group of astronomers from the University of Madrid who published a paper about this.
The effect of collision can be avoided because the star had to pass through an Oort Cloud (a ring made up of billions of icy objects which are surrounded by the solar system).
If star crosses the space by avoiding other stars and reach our solar system then the Oort cloud would repel it anyway. Trillions of icy objects divert the direction of star or asteroids outside of the solar system.
However the problem is the after effect of the incident, scientists said that “the passerby a star can trigger the major comet shower which can have drastic consequence in the inner solar system”
“The death star is directly headed towards the solar system” Scientists added.
The present generation can live freely because the star will take around 1.35 Million years to reach earth’s solar system. Scientists have time to figure out the solution but not in the current situation.
The new study doesn’t fear the star as they don’t think that it will disrupt the whole solar system and cause planets to bombard into the earth.
Scientists said that “it would be a very tough situation to deal with such massive star as it can wipe out whole humanity and everything would vanish in a spur of the moment”.
Earlier this year, astronomers Filip Berski and Piotr Dybczyńsk said: ‘This event will be the strongest disrupting encounter in the future and history of the solar system.’
